Studio B Dance Co. was started in 2005 by Brandi Doyle, the owner and artistic director. It was her goal to create an environment both nurturing and creatively and technically challenging. It was, and will always be, a priority to encourage and challenge students of all ages and levels.
The dream began small, out of rented church Pre K room a couple of nights a week, and has grown steadily over the years from a 1 room studio, to a 3 room studio, to our current location in the Village of Liverpool. Our current location gives our students ample space to learn and grow, with 6,200 square feet of space including 4 dance rooms, boys and girls lockers rooms, an eating area, and in studio live streaming of classes so parents can watch from the lobby.
We work to keep our families informed with monthly newsletters, a Google Calendar to keep track of events and payment due dates, as well as very active Instagram and Facebook accounts.
